Emergency department clinicians are experiencing burnout now more than ever driven primarily by excessive administrative busywork and the ongoing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, extending already long shifts.

Fortunately, Augmedix's new tech-enabled service, powered by virtual scribes, combines artificial and human intelligence, eliminating the need for after-hours work in the Electronic Health Record (EHR), while allowing ED clinicians to focus on direct patient care without the burden of adding headcount to a busy emergency department.
